hello all
Iam a computer graduate and I've got a situation in which I need to make small robot that can move in x,y and z directions.It should be operated by a Personal Computer. I need to design a program that gives the GUI and controls the movement.
Could anyone suggest where I've to start because its a new thing to me and I have basic knowledge of electronics

thank you

A robot that could move in all 3 directions would be a helicopter or a plane.
Are you sure you meant a robot and not a robotic hand ?

Also which part of your project do you specifically need help with.
mechanical, electrical, electronic, firmware or software ?

Or an X, Y, Z gantry.

Search for "DIY CNC machine" in youtube.
You will find many ideas on the mechanical aspects of the design.

It looks amazingly simple for anyone willing to put in time and energy into it.
